Park City 2011: Problem Set #1

We’ll be publishing the daily problem sets from the Park City Mathematics Institute’s content course here.  Please read the first page carefully!  If you comment, do so in a way that doesn’t directly answer questions asked, or point to your own blog.  We apologize for any inside jokes, though these are less prevalent on the first day.

PCMI 2011 Day 1 (July 5, 2011)

Note: participants at PCMI are using Sketchpad throughout the course.  Since we cannot provide the entire world with Sketchpad, the internal Web link has been “redacted” on page 2.  Sorry about that!

For more problems like these, visit PCMI @ Mathforum.  This is the 11th year that EDC has been involved with the Park City Mathematics Institute, and the problem sets from the last ten years can be found on the Mathforum site.

Thanks, and we will continue to post daily.

  1. Wow! Thanks. If I had known I’d get to participate remotely in the PCMI, I’d have made sure to have lots of time for it. Looking forward to playing with some math.

    Thanks for posting these Bowen. When can we expect to see the answer key? 🙂

  3. I’m with Sue and Steve. Thanks for posting these so we can play along in the home version.
